Chapter 13: RESTfull Web Service
In this chapter we discuss what REST is all about and what it does by describing the six constraints of REST.
We introduce the Richardson Maturity Model of a REST API and show how to design a RESTful API.
With a comprehensive example we demonstrate REST in Action and how to implement a RESTful API in a Java EE environment.
We finish we a discussion of HATEOAS which exists at the highest level in the Richardson Maturity Model.
